Joe Sims – “The Dons” of Baldwin Hills – 09/13/2013

Joe Sims is an assemblage artist who often incorporates found objects, such as shoes and obsolete electronics, into his work.  His large sculptures reflect his rich African American heritage and often revolve around a specific story or event.  Sims also uses silhouettes and natural materials in his practice to reveal our connection with nature and the many emotions we experience as part of our human nature.
